More pics from the Forbidden Corner. This time of the herb garden near the end of the attraction. Wish I could name more flowers than Lupins, Foxgloves, Chives and Roses!!!
On Sunday, me and Angela visited the Forbidden Corner in North Yorkshire.
It’s a tourist attraction which is 4 acres of follies in a rural setting, the countryside surrounding it is really gorgeous and you can spend AGES in the maze getting lost!
Statues, doors that lead nowhere, fountains that will squirt you as you go past, tunnels, stepping stones….
It’s like Narnia, Alice in Wonderland and a weird dream all mixed together! (Although I didn’t take many pictures of the bizarre stuff, I actually focused more on the flowers and herb garden which will be in the next post).
Back when I first started blogging (way back in June 2015) I was new to the whole blogging scene. People liked my posts and people commented on them, re-blogged them and followed them. And it was all new to me. I was a like a little puppy who’s ears perk up every time they hear something. What’s this? What’s this?!
One of the first people I came across was Mrs Blooms (I just sort of started calling her that – I hope she doesn’t mind lol! :O) from Candelo Blooms. I’m not kidding when I say she is probably the nicest person on the internet. Her comments are always really sweet and she takes the time to write long ones not just a thumbs up!
Her latest post is up and involves Martenitsas which I wrote about a few weeks ago. They are Bulgarian good luck charms and are worn throughout March pinned to clothing (or trees I think). See, Trina Collins, look what you have started! Now even people in Australia are wearing them!!!
Mrs Blooms always takes such amazing pictures of her garden and flowers and I do sometimes wonder how long it takes her to put a blog post together as there are always so many lovely pictures. I also like nosing at the veggies and fruit which are being grown, it’s the eco warrior in me…makes me dream of smallholdings and homesteads.
You should definitely head on over there to have a look and follow her lovely blog, a while back she posted a recipe for an apple cake which I tried and was very delicious just so you know!
